Birks took over the Scorpions' captaincy after David Howe was injured earlier in the season, and the club overcame Somerset by a single point in a dramatic play-off final.
Birks said: "It was fantastic to hold that trophy aloft.
"I only started riding speedway around three years ago and soon became a Scunthorpe asset.
"To be involved in championship-winning sides in the National League last year and then the Premier League this year, it's been just brilliant, you can't ask for any better than that."
